A loan of $250 helped to buy sewing supplies.

Juan Alberto's story

Juan Alberto lives with his wife in a very humble abode of his own. He is an enterprising person who very much wants to get ahead. He and his wife have a business selling quesadillas and frozen treats like popsicles, chocolate-covered bananas, sorbets and ‘charamuscas’ [frozen fruit juice].

However, Juan is also a tailor; he makes men’s pants and shirts. He’s well-known in the area where he lives for being very cheerful, optimistic and hardworking.

He needs to stock up on the sewing supplies he needs and to make some changes on his sewing machine among other things which is why he’s asking INTEGRAL for a loan to invest in his business buying such things as fabric at cost, needles and some spare parts like bobbins and blades among others to fine-tune his work thus helping his wife in the business and both of them in order to get ahead as entrepreneurs.
